'Gasland' director calls for natural gas moratorium

Oscar nominee Josh Fox wants President Barack Obama to order a national moratorium on the natural gas drilling procedure call hydraulic fracturing.

Fox, nominated for his documentary "Gasland" about environmental problems associated with hydraulic fracturing, made his plea Thursday at a news conference outside the U.S. Capitol.

"The point is, that he has to wake up to this now," Fox said. "We would like to educate him. We would like to bring this to him."

Obama used similar power to order an offshore oil drilling moratorium following the BP Deep Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
